Red bump on penis

Hello Everyone.

A while ago I had a red bump show up on the shaft of my penis. It actually started out as a big red bump, big as in the size of one of your fingernails. Then it got smaller and I figured it was going away, and after a few days it got to about half the size, then stopped getting smaller. It's been there now for about a month, if i feel it it feels like a pimple thats really far under the skin, because i feel something under it. It doesnt hurt or anything. Its rounded on the top. Not flat at all.

Any ideas what it might be?

Re: Red bump on penis

This sounds like a cist/skin tumor. I would see a doctor. Try not to pick at it, or burst/pop it like you do a pimple, that wouldn't be a good thing to do. Your really should let a doctor check it out.

Re: Red bump on penis

sounds like a cyst to me. agreed. don't pop it. let a doctor excise it, or they keep coming back.
